Using the prescription for Emend (anti-nausea med) is very helpful for my breast surgery patients. Breast surgery is well known to have postoperative nausea. Emend helps prevent nausea and vomiting caused by cancer drug treatments (chemotherapy) so it’s super strong. It’s also used to prevent nausea and vomiting after surgery in general.
You can take this medication by mouth with or without food. Usually you can take the first dose one hour before a chemotherapy treatment or prior to your surgery. The following two days you will usually take the dose once daily in the morning or as directed by your doctor. If you are taking this medication to prevent nausea and vomiting after surgery, you will usually take one dose of 40 milligrams before surgery. So if you are interested in surgery but afraid of the nausea from anesthesia come in and let’s talk about your options, there’s many.
